Network data, commonly used throughout the physical, social, and biological sciences, consist of nodes (individuals) and the edges (interactions) between them. One way to represent the complex, high-dimensional structure in network data is to embed the graph into a low-dimensional geometric space. Curvature of this space, in particular, provides insights…

Multidimensional scaling (MDS) is a widely used approach to representing high-dimensional, dependent data. MDS works by assigning each observation a location on a low-dimensional geometric manifold, with distance on the manifold representing similarity. We propose a Bayesian approach to multidimensional scaling when the low-…

The estimator of a causal directed acyclic graph (DAG) with the PC algorithm is known to be consistent based on independent and identically distributed samples. In this paper, we consider the scenario when the multivariate samples are identically distributed but not independent. A common example is a stationary multivariate time series. We show that under a…
